  1. Cool to see Pagoda! Been playing it for years 😎

  2. Schotten totten, Claim, Kahuna and ofc 7 Wonders Duel!

  3. I really enjoy Schotten Totten, Lawyer Up, 1987 Channel Tunnel, Greedy Kingdoms, Fox in the Forrest, Long Live the Queen, Hanamikoji and Blitzkrieg!: World War Two in 20 Minutes.

  4. Raptor is so crazy underated. I barely ever see it mentioned in these lists and I genuinely think it's up with there with the best.

  5. Would love to see a Top 10 list of games that use the “Tech Trees/Tech Tracks” mechanic

  6. My wife and I don't play many exclusively 2 player games even though we do play head to head (and cooperatively at 2 players) a lot in games. 7 Wonders Duel is definitely one of the best out there, Codenames Duet is great too. We have also played Kero, but it hasn't made it to the table much yet… not sure my wife appreciates it too much, but I have enjoyed it. I may have to give some of these a try at some point.

  7. Great list. So nice to see a 2-player games list that is just 2-player. I watch so many of these and games like CARCASSONNE or KINGDOMINO are mentioned as games that 'play good at two'.

    My 10 would be (so hard to narrow down from the amount we have and play):

    AQUALIN
    HIVE
    JAIPUR
    MANDALA
    PARIS LA CITE DE LA LUMIERE
    PATCHWORK
    STAR REALMS
    TARGI
    TATSU
    WATERGATE

  8. Some other solid 2p games

    Hands in the Sea
    Jaipur
    Sekigahara
    Memoir 44
    Heroes of Blackreach
    Polis
    Hammer of the Scots

  9. Mandala is, hands down, the best two player game in my collection. Hive also a real gem, too

  10. One of my favourites is Hanamikoji. It's such an elegant, simple design and it just works.

  11. Seven wonders duel is my favourite board game . Other 2players board games that i like a lot are Zeus and Hera ,Mr jack, Santorini and Raptor

  12. A shame I didn't see Unmatched or especially Santorini, but BH2045 is one of the greatest games ever

  13. On a purely philosophical note, one thing I find a bit funny or strange about our "collective conciousness" is that when people in general talk about and recommend 2p Only games, it's often like genre and every other aspect becomes irrelevant. 2p Only games still have genres and mechanics that might or might not suit your tastes, but that tends to get lost for some super weird reason (again, not talking about this video).

    Or games that have different maps for different player counts. It is for example possible to dislike Concordia at 2 player regardless of which map you're using 🙂 (I like it, btw). "Made for 2p" is not a foolproof way to achieve greatness, is what I'm trying to say.

    Don't mean to come off as a Debbie Downer, I just like to put on philosopher mode and reflect on these things 🙂

  14. Pagoda is the most boring two player game we ever played. Didn't feel like a game at all to us, just two players building towers of different colors.

  15. Thanks brothers Murph for showing the games. Nice video
